Best of 2021 – Goodreads

I had set a goal of 60 books for the year 2021 and conquered it by completing 80 books. Little unbelievable for me. This is by far my best performance in the last 5 years. I have never set a big goal like this before and I went 20 books above the goal, that was…

Goodreads of December 2021

We pretty much did nothing in December, travel-wise. That was mainly because of tremendous office work, many of my colleagues resigned from their positions in favor of attractive offers and that put me on the hot seat. So besides the office work, I was able to invest some time in reading. I read a total…

Goodreads Of November 2021

November month went too fast. We celebrated the birthday of my elder sister on our Colorado trip and sent our best birthday wishes to the younger one, living in Canada. Other than that we stayed pretty much at home. Winter is already at the doorstep, so no more hiking. I managed to read 4 books…

Goodreads Of October 2021

Apart from celebrating my birthday, a road trip to New Jersey with halts in Ohio and Pennsylvania, Halloween night at a haunted house, I read four books in the month. I got the recommendation from my sister about 2008 Booker prize winner The White Tiger, a story about a poor Indian man Balram Halwai who…

Goodreads Of September 2021

I won’t say, September was a busy month, but I could manage to read just 2 books. Quantity is not important, quality matters. This month my read list included Mexican Gothic – a Goodreads choice award winner for the Horror genre and I Am a Man – a non-fiction novel about the struggles of Native…

Goodreads Of August 2021

Despite all of the busyness as I mentioned in the previous post, I still managed to read 5 books in August. I checked out 3 books from Omaha Public Library and downloaded 2 books in the Kindle app through my Prime account. Go the Fuck to Sleep is a graphic humorous short book focused on…

Goodreads Of July 2021

I had enrolled in a writing course recently. It was an online reading course where every week they used to add new chapters along with interesting assignments. July month’s reading was pretty much from those assignments. I read 5 classic short stories in digital format and a book from the library. The Story of an…

Goodreads Of June 2021

I know, I am very late for this post. July is about to finish and I am still talking about June’s Goodreads. Pardon me for the delay, I was really busy these days mainly due to a recent job change. I read a total of 11 books in June month, this time mostly on Kindle. There is…

Goodreads Of May 2021

Though I read just 5 books in May, each one of them was unique in its own way. My choices are getting better 🙂 I started my month with the last book of the Harry Potter series – Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows which needs no introduction. The author kept the plot promising so…

Goodreads of April 2021

As said in the previous post, April was not so productive in terms of physical activities. But that gave ample time to invest in reading. I completed Python 3.5 course from Gale Courses through Omaha Public Library and read a total of 10 books. Thus I have completed 62% of the goal (of 60 books)…
